      First proposed by John Duns Scotus (–), a haecceity is a non-qualitative property responsible for individuation and identity. As understood by Scotus, a haecceity is not a bare particular in the sense of something underlying qualities.

Presenting a selection of nine fundamental theological texts of Duns Scotus, some translated into English for the first time, this book provides detailed commentary on each text to reveal Scotus' conception of divine goodness and the nature of the human response to that goodness.

History has confirmed that Blessed John Duns Scotus was one of the most gifted and influential philosophers ever to come out of the Middle Ages.

Wolter, O.F.M. () did more than anyone else in his generation to make the thought of John Duns Scotus accessible to the English-speaking world.

Wolter accomplished this, on the one hand, by publishing volume after volume of Scotus’s writings, w. This chapter introduces the central concepts in Duns Scotus's natural philosophy and physics. One of them is his theory of individuation, where each individual has a own non-repeatable property called ‘haeccecity’.

Almost as famous as this theory is his defence of what philosophers call ‘contra-causal’ freedom, freedom to bring about ‘not-a’ even if all the conditions are necessary. In God, the Flesh, and the Other, the philosopher Emmanuel Falque joins the ongoing debate about the role of theology in important voice in the second generation of French philosophy’s “theological turn,” Falque examines philosophically the fathers of the Church and the medieval theologians on the nature of theology and the objects comprising it.

Duns Scotus's writings are very numerous and they have often been printed; some, in fact, at a very early date.

The Singular Voice of Being reconsiders John Duns Scotus’s well-studied theory of the univocity of being in light of his less explored discussions of ultimate difference.
